Love their fajita tacos, so delicious and so tender...even love their tortillas (both corn and flour), I have ordered just about everything on the menu and it is ALL very good. For the kids, they have an inside playground

They have a salsa bar that is very good. Good mexican fast food. Reasonably priced and very tasty. They have aguas frescas, and sodas. Always willing to stop in for a taco or quesadilla.

!Chicken Fajitas with beans and rice served in a bowl with corn tortillas and guacamole served on the side, is awesome. To drink "Horchata..is like dessert".
